Virtual Courtroom Etiquette
The courtroom, whether a physical in-person courtroom, or a virtual courtroom using telephone or video technology, remains a formal and serious setting where matters involving real people and real lives are heard. Every case is important, and all participants are asked to maintain court decorum in the virtual world, just as they would in person. We ask all individuals participating in virtual court proceedings to continue to observe the following well-established rules of court decorum:
- Dress appropriately for court. Business attire is always appropriate for court; sweatshirts, gym clothes, Hawaiian shirts, concert t-shirts, sports team jerseys and pajamas are never appropriate.
- Eliminate distractions. Participating in virtual court proceedings often means appearing from home. Please try to locate a quiet area and minimize interruptions by others in the home.
- Do not watch TV or listen to the radio while you are participating in virtual court.
- Put your cell phones and other technology in silent mode during the virtual court proceeding.
- Do not bring food to the virtual courtroom. This includes chewing gum.
- Do not use tobacco or vaping products in the virtual courtroom.
- Sit up straight. Show the same courtesy the court is showing you. Do not prop your feet up on a table or chair.
Thank you for reviewing and following these guidelines. This has been an extraordinary time for all of us, both professionally and personally. By treating each other with respect and following these guidelines, we will not only get through this, but find ways to be better at what we do. The Northglenn Municipal Court hopes to be more efficient, flexible, and accessible to all.Sincerely,
Judge Amanda Bailhache
